To Mr William Alvey Darwin

Greys Inn London                                                   Newcas[tle] 6th Novem[be]r 1765

Sir          Inclosed I send you W[ilia]m Clayton’s bill on Robert Machell for hundred pounds, and my bill on Plumb & Browne for Ninety five pounds to enable you to pay Mr Savage’s half year’s int[e]r[es]t of his mortgage on Wallington due this day & till you do pay it I desire you will place these bills to my Account and advise me of the receipt of them.

Pray  is any thing yet done towards perfecting the title of the copyhold part of Woodcroft Estate; for Sir Walter talks of having that Estate sold first & afterwards of selling so much of Fenwick as will answer the remainder of his demands upon the trust estate. P.S. I am afraid the D: of Cumberlands Death will occasion a considerable alteration in the stocks; for I think a carte blanche must now be offered Mr. Pitt, and that he will not refuse it, & then the stocks will up again. Only I should be glad to know whether the Letter of Attorney, that I desired you to send me, to empower you to sell, will do as well two or three months hence as now; and when I have your answer to this point I will determine what to do. I am etc  Hen Richmond
